Bloc Party's Kele Okereke Reveals New Solo Album '2042'
Bloc Party frontman Kele Okereke has announced his next solo album. Titled 2042, it will arrive on November 8 via his own label KOLA.

The lead single and album opener is titled "Jungle Bunny," and it hears Okereke confronting racism from the perspective of a black entertainer in the public eye.
 
"There is a history of black entertainers feeling that after they have achieved a certain level of success that they are above discussions of race but that idea is a delusion," he said in a statement. "As a person of colour living in the western world, it does not matter how much wealth one accumulates, race will follow you wherever you go. With 'Jungle Bunny' I wanted explore this idea: In a time of such rampant division and public racism, what is the responsibility of the black entertainer?"
